7075.it T4 brass option parts & BL motor tool

Coming from Italian company 7075.it are new brass option parts for the Xray T4 series of touring cars as well as a 540-class brushless motor tool. Starting with the option parts, first up are brass steering bellcrank posts that add about 9g of weight to the front end of the chassis. A direct replacement for the standard parts the brass posts will add weight, making the car easier to drive in many track conditions. The optional posts are usable with the standard composite and optional alloy steering bellcranks.

Trinity Monster Max brushless stock motor

Coming from Trinity is the new Monster Max brushless stock motor. Building on the proven Monster Horsepower motor the Monster Max features the TEP1112 high-torque rotor, a newly designed low-resistance stator, it has the red insulators removed for lower resistance and increased airflow and black thermal epoxy makes for better heat dissipation which leads to a lot less fading of the motor over the run. The ROAR approved power plant is available in 13.5T, 17.5T and 21.5T variants.

Reds Racing VX 540 17.5T high torque brushless motor

Coming from Reds Racing is the new VX540 17.5T high torque electric brushless motor. Complementing the already existing 13.5T and 21.5T high torque variants, the motor offers a precision-machined 6061-T6 high airflow can, a balanced sintered rotor as well as low resistance solder tabs. The specially tuned motor will offer increased low-RPM torque while maintaining unchanged top speed, making it ideal for tracks that requires both lots of bottom end power and speed.

LRP tease X22 540-size brushless motors

LRP have released first information on their forthcoming X22 electric brushless motors. Follow-up model of the successful X20 series, that has won three World Championships, multiple European and National as well as ETS and EOS titles, the motors will sport an updated, ultra-lightweight and precision machined 7075-T6 aluminium housing with maximised cut-outs and additional openings on the flat parts to further increase the cooling surface and lower the running temperatures due to improved airflow even at maximum loads. The most noticeable change has been made at the surface of the housing. The X22 comes with the “dark shine black” anodising with X22 engraving that will make it stand out in every chassis.
